That is an awesome load.
Pull bullets, dump powder, resize to .308, trim and anneal. Sell bullets. Reuse powder in .308s or dump.
Most profit, least work= SELL THE AMMO.
$30-$35 per box is not uncommon. List it for $20. Somebody needs it.
So it's not entirely a joke that you might need a new 7x57 rifle.
48.3 grains H4350, 139 grain Hornady Interlock, 2800 FPS, low recoil load for my granddaughter.
48.5 grains H4350, 162 Hornady BTSP, 2732 FPS, 54 KPSI.
50.5 grains H4350, 150 NosBT, 2864 FPS, 56.6 KPSI
Btw, son is 45 and still uses that same 7x57
I hate converting cases from one caliber to another unless it can not be found.
I would either sell what you have and just buy your 308 cases or trade what you have for 308 cases.
Factory 308 ammunition is readily available at most retailers. 7x57 is not.
There are guys out there that need your lucky find.
In other words, YES, you need a new 7x57 rifle.
My experience with 7×57 was in an old Spanish mouser. Dad traded it away but it was a neat little rifle and fun to shoot. Definitely not the latest and greatest hunting rifle but fun at the range.
If you dont get an offer I'm pretty sure ppu makes brass for a decent price.
Easy to find .270. I been doing it for 30 years.
